      The funny thing about patience is that it works! Training each day is its own reward in that it invests in future days. You sounds like you are solidly on the right track. God speed all the way to Hopkinton!

      LOL! You wouldn't think that Dylan was good to run to, but that song is great. :-) And there I was running, with that dark dawn blue threading through the clouds. One of those perfect moments. :-) And you have all the best titles!

    good Five miles w/4x hills (up) 5.3 mi 00:46 08:45 pace

    good Long Run Sunday 9.56 mi 01:28 09:10 pace

    This is the most I've run since the flu laid me flat. Feeling a bit nervous to have lost a couple of weeks of training, as I seem to lose fitness so much faster as an old broad, but I'll... read more
